If you’re a radio business fan — that is, more than a listener — there are now two sources of trade news that are worth a darn. Tom Taylor, longtime editor of Inside Radio (always radio’s feistiest daily news fax), left that publication earlier this year and has now emerged with his own name on the masthead of a free email newsletter called “Taylor on Radio-Info.” Radio-Info.com is now run by other former Inside Radio and M-Street Journal people, whose firm Tom joined. Check both sites out, and sign up for Tom’s free daily email. You can also subscribe to Inside Radio’s daily, but it’ll cost you. Frank Saxe, another veteran radio biz reporter, is now running the show there. Both are excellent sources. Taylor’s the dean of radio industry reporters, though.

Heinrich Hertz's experiments proved the existence of electromagnetic radiation. Cycles-per-second, the standard measure of radio wave frequency, was named for him. He died in 1894, at 37. Wikipedia: Hertz

STERN-3
What do you do with a problem like Howard? After decades of profits and FCC indecency fines as routine budget items, Howard Stern, king of all pottymouth radio guys, followed his enabler Mel Karmazin to Sirius Satellite Radio, leaving CBS to make up a hundred million in revenue (They sold stations) and fill the void for the half of Howard's loyal audience who didn't choose to buy a new radio and pay fifteen bucks a month for a few more, ranker epithets.

PALEY-S
CBS might have become the Cigar Broadcasting System. William S. Paley was the scion of the family business. In 1927, his cigar tycoon dad, Samuel, bought the struggling network of early radio stations from a group of poor schlumps who were trying to – would you believe: sell programming to radio stations! Every syndicator since has had to relearn that this doesn't work. Bill and his dad figured out the right business model -- you sell commercials to advertisers, and give the programs to stations. Got it?
